Questions for Discussions:

  • What is the business model for this software?
  • Are the barriers to entry to existing photo sharing software firms likely to prevent them from developing the same “short-life” technology?
  • How should managers at these firms be expected to respond?
  • Is the $3 billion valuation sensible?
